The Federal Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant
The TEACH grant is a non-need–based grant program that provides up to $4,000* per year to students who are enrolled full time in the Master of Education.
Students who are enrolled part-time may be eligible for up to $2,000 per year.
- be accepted into the Master of Education program at Cabrini to be eligible
- agree to teach in a high-need field, at a low-income elementary or secondary school as a highly qualified teacher for at least four years, within eight years of completing the program for which the TEACH Grant is awarded
- sign a service agreement to this effect and complete all required counseling prior to receiving the TEACH grant
If the student subsequently fails to meet the requirements of the service agreement, the TEACH grant will be treated as a Direct Unsubsidized Loan and the student must repay funds with interest accrued from the date of disbursement.
To be eligible for this Federal Grant opportunity, a student must:
- Be fully accepted into the Master of Education degree program at Cabrini University
- Enter with at least a 3.25 cumulative grade point average and/or maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.25 while attending Cabrini
- File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
- Submit a TEACH Grant Request form to the Financial Aid Office
- Complete the TEACH Grant counseling prior to signing the Agreement to Serve
- Sign the Agreement to Serve for each year of TEACH grant eligibility
To learn more about the benefits of the TEACH Grant, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at 610.902.8422.
*NOTE: The TEACH grant is affected by the annual federal budget cut, known as the sequester. Therefore, all awards must be reduced by 6.9%.
For example, a full-time student who is eligible for a $4,000 annual award will receive $3,862 for the year.
